lyrics

If you got somethin’ to prove, then that’s coo
I just hope it ain’t for your pride ‘cos I’ve made that move

(Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey) Don’t think I’m waitin’ for your silence to break
Girl, I got my own hell to raise
I’m in this simple situation with a girl that we call “just a thang”,
That I like to call “gray”
In-between what we won’t say and what we say- I mean I’m sayin’ what I’m sayin’,
but the fact that we don’t say all we think
Gots me thinkin’ “Awww Hell, what’s real?”
Walkin’ casual circles as if we’re gonna get somewhere
It’s confusin’ when we’re standin’ at this distance
Far enough that strings don’t get attached, but close enough to kiss
And I’m coo wit’ it if ya coo wit’ it,
But can’t see the point in bein’ subtle if they’re ain’t no truth in it
We can play this off only so long with whatever
Still tryin’ to get it together
-
Chorus
Sittin’ on your front porch
Holdin’ a conversation that would soon get cut short
Talkin’ about the reason that we hold our hands for
I mentioned to be friends and then ya told me what for
Before I could respond, you shut ya front door
Tellin’ front door
Sittin’ on your front porch
Until ya shut your front door
-
Silence is a coward you think brave just for your sake
And there ain’t nothin’ I can say to cure the coward you’ve mistaked
No, I can’t just walk on and play like so and play for show
And I done heard that song composed before- composed for show
So we’re shades of gray waitin’ to fade away
Hopin’ the canvas that we painted someday has a frame
I don’t look back in shame, although I’d have to say
You know those thoughts on your mind when you’re half-awake?
They feel ideal, not like dreams
Or good ideas, just somethin’ ya feel
Like we should be.
Instead I’m just a fool for relivin’

Chorus

If you got somethin’ to lose then don’t bring it with you
Come with what you came to use
(Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey) Don’t think that you’re the reason why I stress what I say
Girl, I still got May’s rent to pay
Since when did walkin’ away become a method of game
How you’ve descended so, and given condescension a name
I’d bend this walls enough,
but you’d rather murder than save
See it how ya want it to be seen
Push out your smile and leave at your own pace
Force feed your ego and persuade your false faith
Your smile only means to scream and disbelieve
And It’s not like I haven’t done the same
I’m just another guy that can’t figure out how to walkaway
I’m just sayin’ what I been tryin’ to say
Yeah, I’d like to spend the rest of the day

Chorus

about

G8 Minneapolis, Minnesota

An assembly of jazz elites and a national slam poet vocalist, G8 slated their name after the Group of 8 conference where the 8 richest countries gather together under a guise of unity, but more so to impose wealth as a determinate in changing the world. Here, the band G8 holds the mantra to change the world with music. Now defunct, the group left behind one piece of recorded legacy. ... more
